John Cena: Although the current face of the WWE is often corny and immature with his jokes and taunts, there is no denying that the man is charismatic. He possesses the rare ability to be able to whip a crowd up into a frenzy with a unique passion and intensity.
The Miz: The Miz has not been considered a main event talent for very long in the WWE but he has excelled himself on the mic for the duration of his push. The Miz can verbally spar with the best of them, and by the end of his wrestling career, he may well have earned himself a place higher on this list.
Jim Cornette: Cornette's famous "hairdryer treatment" was the end product for talent that did not live up to his very high standards. As a manager, he used his motormouth to great effect elevating talent such as the Midnight Express and Owen Hart to great success in the 80s and 90s.
Mr. Perfect: Hennig managed to become one of the leading heels in the business when he was the Intercontinental Champion, and this was largely due to his mic skills. The WWF had such faith in his talking ability that they gave him a place on the Primetime panel alongside Bobby Heenan.
Edge: The "Rated R Superstar" was much better on the mic as a heel, as so many are, and his many promos during his feud with Undertaker in particular will stand the test of time. Edge was surprisingly good at making the fans hate him.
Ted DiBiase Sr.: The Million Dollar Man was an incredibly convincing character and DiBiase's smooth talking style and natural air of superiority helped him pull it off.
Triple H: The Triple H character is an exaggerated version of who Paul Levesque is, and he can therefore express himself and make his points naturally. He has also made the seamless transition from comedy character with DX to monster heel during the McMahon-Helmsley era.
Raven: An ECW original who has also made a name for himself in WCW, WWE and TNA, Raven's supreme intellect was evident every time he spoke, and his eerie promos helped to make his character that much more convincing.
Shawn Michaels: Particularly later in his career, HBK cut some memorable promos, and it was always evident that he had charisma and a natural ability to run his mouth. Some of his shoot promos on Bret Hart are very topical at the moment with the release of the new DVD that documents this legendary rivalry.
Michael PS Hayes: The "Fabulous Freebird" was arrogant and self-centred to the last degree, and his mic skills helped him to come off as even more obnoxious.
Jerry "the King" Lawler: The current Raw colour commentator was once a top heel in the WWF feuding with the likes of Bret Hart. He also went on to carve a reputation for himself as one of the greatest heel announcers in history, never at a loss for words.
Hulk Hogan: The "Hulkster's" promos were never well thought out, but when he told the kids to "say their prayers, do their training and eat their vitamins," he was fulfilling his role as a role model. Hogan's charisma was off the charts, and when he spoke, everyone listened.
Brian Pillman: The Canadian wild card was incredibly convincing at portraying his "Loose Cannon" persona, and a series of intense shoot promos are clear evidence of that.
